Expanding Access to Law-Related Services
The Practice of Law Board is considering many ways to fulfill its mission to recommend to the Supreme Court ways nonlawyers can assist in access to law-related services. The Board is always interested in input and suggestions for areas to study or areas for action. Over the next year, the Board plans to continue to work on these projects.
In 2008, the Board sent its Legal Technician Rule proposal to the Supreme Court. On June 15, 2012, the Court adopted the Rule, effective September 1, 2012. Additional information will be available on the WSBA Website soon.
